Ashley and I went to see the Broadway show ‘Mamma Mia’ – the traveling troupe – Tuesday night. They performed in Huntsville at the Von Braun Concert Hall. This was my first time seeing ‘Mamma Mia’ and my first time to Huntsville. I nearly crashed when I saw the Space Center….up until now it was just a mythical camp that we, as children, wanted to go to more than anything in the world.
I’m sure I was on the outskirts of Huntsville or something. Actually, we might have been downtown, but it was quite small so I don’t think so. I do know that it was kind of “ghetto-y.” Yes, I just made up another word. I tend to do that, along with Ashley. I would have to check my book (yes, I keep a book of all these new words…”my” dictionary, if you will), but I know we’ve made up ‘caxi’ – cab and tax, ‘scollege’ – school and college, and now ghetto-y. And you can’t challenge me, because this isn’t Scrabble.
Back to the show. It was amazing. If you have never seen it, I highly recommend going. Even if you have seen it, go again. It’ll definitely make you dance around in your seat. I’m not giving you details other than it contains all ABBA songs (if you didn’t know). For you disco-goers out there, that’s reason enough to grab some tickets. But, in our show, the acting was amazing, as well. The singing, the orchestra, everything. I thought the venue was a little old and the acoustics weren’t as good as they could have been, but that’s not the performers’ faults. I do believe we saw it opening night too, and it went off without a hitch. If it comes back to Montgomery I’m taking everyone I know…including my dad who loves ABBA!
In other breaking news, Pluto is no longer a planet. What is the world coming to when they start reneging on planets??
In even more breaking news, I’m leaving for the beach today. WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!! That’s all I can say about that until I get back. But, once again…WOO FREAKIN’ HOO!!!!
That being said, I won’t be back online until Monday or so. I’ll have an update and pictures when I get back. I’ll have a drink for ya’ll!
(PS – I don’t time to proof this. If it has typos, I’m sorry!)
